Welcome to Tulips and Turnips - Handmade for Baby!
The place of my creative journey. Most of my posts,
at least so far, have been about the processes involved
in starting a new business on my own.
My hopes are to have a few tutorials each month,
a giveaway each month, and previews of new items
and ideas, and various ramblings by me. Please feel
free to comment, share ideas, be a critic, etc.
Thank you for visiting and please check out my
Etsy shop!

My creations.

I started out making onesies with appliques, I posted a few here today, more to come. Now I'm working on things that Moms (and Dads) need when they are either at home or out in the world such as baby blanket/playmat (most are fairly large measuring around 30"x 33" or so), small diaper bag, onesies, and bib or burp cloth. There will be other combinations of things as well, like a diaper bag and onesie or small blanket or lovie and onesie. And maybe someday lovie stuffed animals. My goal is to have a website that I can set up so that people can choose what they want, sort of a custom creations type of thing. I try to imagine what kinds of designs and sizes of things I would find most useful, and will therefore make most items based on that. But I am hoping to be able to make things for other's specific needs as far as sizes and color preferences. I will hopefully have a link or two to online locations where my creations can be purchased... we'll see I guess : )

About Me

My photo
My name is Shawn and I am a stay at home Mom of two boys and also a student. After many years of school and a Master's degree in Psychology, I decided to go back to school for Lactation Consulting. I spend most of my time with my children, and working on my sewing projects. Currently the sewing projects have to due with my little side business of making things for babies, which will be the main focus of this blog. I also love spending time with my husband but I see him very little now because he is busy with work and paramedic training. We have been together ten years now and married five! I love making things for special people in my life, I feel like it's something I can do to stay connected and maybe they will think of me when they see the blanket, pillow, curtain, or whatever else I have made. Since I am a somewhat introverted kind of person sewing seems to fit me, it's a way to express myself creatively, and put love into each piece, for each person. My life is quite challenging at times but I make sure to think about things I am grateful for each day.
